Coffee Festival at Sutherland

10 August, 2014 (Sunday)

On Sunday we gave chado demonstrations at the Sutherland Coffee Festival. There were many food and coffee stalls in a park. We set up misono-dana in the Japanese garden that Sutherland sister city’s Chuo-ku donated. It was a warm day and many people turned up.

We demonstrated with Misono-dana, and many people interested to see Japanese Tea Ceremony performance and listened the explanation of the Tea ceremony history with background of Japanese Culture.

We did chado demonstrations ten times between 10 am and 4 pm. Anthony explained energetically as usual, and Mikako, Megumi and Masako did temae and hanto. Keiko Hosoda did hanto too. Chado demonstration caught many peoples’ interest, but tasting matcha is less attractive because of the hot weather.
